The Head of State will be a guest at a formal session in Sofia of the Committee of Plenipotentiaries of the governments of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) based in Dubna, Russian Federation

Head of State Rumen Radev held a meeting at 2 Dondukov Blvd. with JINR Vice President Lachezar Kostov at which the two discussed the prospects for developing the partnership between Bulgaria and the JINR in the field of fundamental and applied research.

Bulgaria has proven its role in the Institute's activities and research - for nearly 65 years over 500 Bulgarian physicists, engineers, mathematicians, chemists, biologists, etc. have worked at the JINR. Every year, nearly 100 Bulgarian scientists visit the laboratories of the organisation, each of which is comparable in the scope of its activities to a large research institute.

During the meeting, President Rumen Radev accepted the invitation extended by Lachezar Kostov to be an official guest at a formal session in Sofia of the Committee of Plenipotentiaries of the Governments of the JINR. The forum will be held in November this year. 2021 has been declared the year of Bulgaria by the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research and the participation of the Head of State in the formal session is a recognition of Bulgaria's role in the development of nuclear research and fundamental sciences worldwide.

The crux of the problem in the Republic of North Macedonia is the systematic de-Bulgarisation and destruction of the Bulgarian cultural and historical heritage in that country for years. The 'revival process' against the Macedonian Bulgarians that has been going on for years is not a two-sided problem: human rights and non-discrimination are fundamental principles deeply embedded in the foundations of the European Union.
